Well you are a hybrid. Straight up black hair is rough like the streets of Kingston Jamaica; where do you think the first brillo pads came from? And it takes allot of work to get black hair looking and feeling nice.
The way you described your skin almost makes me change my mind about olive tone, but it's a close call.

100% percent black I love my hair. I can add it, cut it, anything I like with it. Perm it, grease it, it looks lovely! NO LICE IN IT LOL. NICE.

I still consider myself black. I know a few blks where I am from originally (The South) who has the same features as me. I don't see many here in NYC but more so in the South. The reason being there was more mixing with the Native Americans & whites in the South. A lot of women in my family were born with naturally straight or wavy hair. A lot of blks are mixed and you will find many of them who come with hair like mine or skin complexion like mine. My sister came out with green eyes and me with light brown. Not all black people have brillo nappy hair. Yes, some do but not all. Not all come as black as midnight either.
UR not black. UR a mulatto. That's why you make men's nuts bust all over the USA. You probably get the gals wet too.

Working out is a must. As we age, we must continue to keep our bodies and major organs in good shape.... I work out an hour a day, 5 days a week. My hair is never a issue, because I purchase 100% virgin human, from Her Imports. They have stores in many states, check them out at . I must say this hair is awesome and easy to maintain. I no issues, I work out with easy, check them out @ . I promise you wouldn't be disappointed
